that the man was working on deeply sensitive image technology. doug mckelway is tracking the story live from washington. what did they find here, doug? what's up? >> reporter: this guy is a chinese national workinging under contract at nasa national institutes of aerospace on deeply sensitive imaging technology. it has potentially valuable military applications. his case was brought to the tanks of authorities by a nasa whistle-blower. he was arrested by fbi agents and dulles airport charged with violating the arms ex-trort control act as he awaited a one-way flight to china. tsa officials initially detained him and asked if he was caring electronic devices. he told them he had a cell phone, memory stick and external hard drive and a new computer. however during the search other media items were located that chang did not reveal. an additional laptop, old hard drive and a sim card. congressman frank wolf fears his case may be the tip of the iceberg. >> i have seen documents other nasa contractors similarly employees chinese nationalists. this begs a question how many chinese nationalists cur

because the information technology age has changed everything. the good news is, the diswhroobz are being -- the jobs that are being created, these new middle-class jobs, have a lot more opportunity for a lot more security and fulfillment and higher pay. the bad news is we don't have a lot of people that have the skills for those jobs. we have a skills gap in america that needs to be closed. and that -- that involves education up and down the line. but the one i want to focus on is school choice. i think it is wrong that the only parents in america that cannot send their kids to the school they want are poor parents. i think that is fundamentally wrong. middle-class parents, they can sacrifice and scrape and some of them, not all of them, some of them can afford to send their kids to the school of their choice. rich people can send their kids to any school they want. but a poor parent in america, they're stuck. envision this for a moment. envision this for a moment. you are a poor parent, you are a poor, single mom or single dad, you're living already in a dangerous neighborhood in substa
because of globalization and technology. and we cannot do these two things, we cannot change the fiscal trajectory of this country and we cannot make investments in our future and our children unless we do two things. first, reform the entitlement programs in this country and second, take actions to raise evenues. last year 13% of the american population was over 65. in 2030, 20% of the american population will be over 65. this singular fact dominates our whole discussion around our fiscal future. just to put this into perspective, if we don't change the trajectory of our entitlement programs, in 10 years they will consume 70% of our spending and literally crowd out every other priority we have as a country. and just to put this in a sharper focus, right now as a country, if you add up all the spending at the federal, state and local level on americans over 65, that number is $27,000 per year. if you do the same math on americans under 18, that number is $11,000 a year. -- 2.5 -- 1/2-1 -- 2- 2.5-1 ratio. i don't think we should spend less on the early elderly. i don't think -- on the e
